National Science Foundation’s Briefing on Strategic Directions in CISE, Computing Community Consortium (CCC), and the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI)
June 25, 2006
CRA organized the National Science Foundation briefing, June 25, 2006, to inform attendees at the CRA Conference at Snowbird about plans for GENI. This was a shorter meeting than the full Town Hall sessions that were held around the country to gather broad community input.
The Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) is planning a new initiative, “Global Environment for Networking Innovations” (GENI), to explore new networking capabilities that will advance science and stimulate innovation and economic growth. GENI’s goal is to increase the quality and quantity of experimental research outcomes in networking and distributed systems, and to accelerate the transition of these into products and services that will enhance economic competitiveness and help to secure the nation's future. Ultimately, the research enabled by GENI is expected to lead to a next-generation of network capabilities and services.
Specifically, the GENI initiative envisions the creation of new networking and distributed system architectures that, for example:
The GENI initiative includes a research program and a global experimental facility designed to explore new architectures, distributed systems and networked applications at scale.
